That "if it moves the slightest bit" is another needless concern. Some slight cylinder movement is no problem, though it is more common in S&W's than in Colts. One drawback of the Colt system is that in a worn gun, once the second level of the hand pushes against the ratchet tooth, it can actually force the chamber OUT of alignment with the barrel. It takes a lot of wear, but I have seen it happen.
